JT Cunningham was one of the shredders on the recent UK Lil Pros UK BMX tour. He rides a custom 18 inch BMX and we caught up with him to get all the details of his ride to share it with all the BMX Groms out there. JT has spent a lot of time dialing in his bike and if you’re around the same age, you’ll find this information really useful.
